Saint Mary’s adds two administrators

first_imgWith the new year underway, Saint Mary’s College welcomed administrative change at the start of the spring 2015 semester. The single office once dedicated to “Student Involvement and Multicultural Services” is now split and led by two new directors, Brittany House and Gloria Jenkins.“They provide different services and opportunities for students,” sophomore Lydia Heller said. “Now that the offices are separate, they will be able to cater to more people on a more detailed level.”Heller said she believes the combination of offices will have a positive impact on the College.Saint Mary’s newest administrators said they expect the positive impact of their offices to extend to the students and themselves.“I enjoy working at smaller, private liberal arts colleges, and I wanted to work for a women’s institution,” House, the new director of Student Involvement, said. “When I interviewed here, everyone was friendly and genuine. I was impressed — and still am — by the students I met during my interview. Their maturity, dedication, and intelligence are inspiring.”Both Jenkins and House were introduced to the College just last week, but both said they found Saint Mary’s appealing because of its identity as a liberal arts college and the character of its faculty, staff and students.“[The campus] made a very good impression,” Jenkins, the new director of Multicultural Services, said. “The mission and the values, everything that [students] do here.”Jenkins said she intends to actively reach out to the women of Saint Mary’s College and cater to their needs.“The most important thing is making time for the students, getting to know them and trying to find out how in my role I can help the students and meet the mission of the institution as well,” Jenkins said. “I want to find out how our offices can better serve the students.”Since Jenkins started her new role, she said she finds fulfillment in realizing her mission.“My highlight of my workday is just meeting all the great students and having the opportunity to sit down and talk with them,”  Jenkins said. “I’m someone that really believes in serving others and mentoring women leaders. Whatever the needs are, that’s my job to do those needs.”Both offices, though similar in services offered to students, have different ways of implementing their ideas through the focus of their respective offices, House and Jenkins said.“The Office of Student Involvement will work with students and student organizations both,” House said. “In my role as director, I plan to be interacting with students through the programs and events our office will be hosting.”House said she is especially excited to help with the College’s annual spring festival Tostal this semester.Jenkins said she is particularly interested in “working on the Belles Connect Scholars Program.”Both halves of the former office have an open-door policy meant to encourage students to engage in the planning of college events.“I’m always open to ideas and suggestions from students on the types of programs and events they would like to see on campus,” House said.“We will be working closely together,” Jenkins said.  “We will be continuing to work and collaborate together. We’re partners in making sure that there’s a good campus life on campus and that we meet the needs of the students.”Tags: Brittany House, Gloria Jenkins, Office of Multicultural Services, Office of Student Involvementlast_img read more

Rep. Steve Israel Won’t Run for Re-election, Setting Off Race to Replace Him

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York U.S. Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington) announced Tuesday that he won’t seek re-election in November, citing a desire to frequent some of his favorite New York diners and dedicate more time to writing his second novel.Now the scramble is on to fill his seat. Israel says he hopes it will remain in Democratic hands.“Nearly 16 years ago, I was honored to take the oath of office and stand on the House floor for the first time,” Israel said in a statement. “Now, I’ve decided to leave the House in 2017. I hope to continue to be involved in public service, but it is time for me to pursue new passions and develop new interests, mainly spend more time writing my second novel.”Israel was first elected to Congress in 2000 when he won the race for what is now the 3rd Congressional District, which includes much of Nassau’s Gold Coast and parts of western Suffolk County, after his predecessor, Republican Rick Lazio, vacated his seat to make an unsuccessful run for U.S. Senate.“I want to be a team player and ensure that my district, which is the only competitive district in the House Democratic Leadership, remains in the hands of Democrats when I leave,” he said.Israel expressed confidence that November’s presidential election will inspire Democrats, who historically don’t vote in off-year elections, to flood the polls.“It has been an incredible and humbling opportunity to serve my community,” Israel said. “Simply put, it’s time to pass on the torch.”Israel’s first book, The Global War on Morris, was published in December 2014. His next book, Big Guns, is reportedly a satire on the gun lobby.The 57-year-old veteran lawmaker grew up in Levittown. He later served on the Huntington town council before running for Congress.Israel’s announcement comes nearly two years to the day that fellow Democrat, former U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, announced her retirement plans after serving 17 years in Congress.Democrats managed to hold on to McCarthy’s seat when Kathleen Rice, the former Nassau District Attorney, won a close race for the 4th Congressional seat. On the East End, long-time Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Bishop lost the 1st Congressional District in 2014 to then-New York State Sen. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley).Until Israel made his announcement this week, the battle over Zeldin’s seat was drawing national attention from both parties. At the moment, former Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and former Suffolk Planning Commission chairman and venture capitalist David Calone are vying to be the Democratic nominee.The only other Congressional seat fully on Long Island has long been held by U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), who represents the South Shore of Nassau and Suffolk counties. U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens) represents a sliver of western Nassau. Both lawmakers routinely fend off challengers by large percentages at the polls.As for replacing Israel, no candidate has formally declared, although that announcement could come very soon. So far, Democratic names bandied about include former Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi; Suffolk Legis. Steve Stern (D-Dix Hills), who’s being term-limited out of the legislature; Assemb. Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove); and North Hempstead Councilwoman Anna Kaplan. The most prominent Republican to step forward so far is state Sen. Jack Martins (R-Old Westbury), the former Mineola mayor who’s said he’s “strongly considering running.” Other potential Republican candidates include Assemb. Andrew Raia (R-East Northport), Assemb. Chad Lupinacci (R-Huntington) and Suffolk Leg. Robert Trotta (R-Fort Salonga).This list of wannabees could grow or shrink significantly in the days ahead once the dust settles.Israel rose to prominence within Democratic House leadership and served as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for two terms. But he chose not to seek another term as chairman following a brutal showing by Democrats in the 2014 mid-term elections. At the time, Israel said he had made his decision that spring, adding that the nationwide bludgeoning had no bearing on his decision. He currently serves as chair of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.Early in 2015, U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) took over as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee after Israel stepped down.“Steve Israel is a great colleague, strategist, mentor and friend, and he will be greatly missed after he leaves Congress,” said Luján in a statement. “Steve will continue to be an active force this year, a leader of House Democrats, and a champion of the issues that matter to hardworking families on Long Island and across the county. I wish him great luck in the next phase of his career.”As for New York’s 3rd Congressional District, Israel won it handily despite Republicans’ nationwide gains: he had 58.2 percent of the vote in 2012 and 54.8 percent in 2014. According to the DCCC, the currently configured district would have been won by both Sen. John Kerry and Vice President Al Gore, and the Democrats hold an 8.2 point advantage in party registration over the Republicans: 38.3 percent to 30.1 percent.“I am fully confident that Democrats will continue to hold this reliably Democratic district, particularly in a Presidential year,” added Luján.Democrats need to win back 30 seats on Election Day to regain the majority in the House of Representatives. Currently holding 188 seats, it’s the fewest the Democrats have had since 1947, according to Congressional Quarterly.—with Rashed Mianlast_img read more

River fish kill puzzles Hinoba-an authorities

first_imgMost of these dead fish were found inBarangay 1 Poblacion, where the river’s mouth is located. Samples taken from three sites havebeen submitted to the laboratory of BFAR-Western Visayas in Iloilo City. Affected areas covered at least aseven kilometers of the Hinoba-an River, spanning barangays 1 Poblacion, 2Poblacion, San Rafael, and Bacuyangan. BACOLOD City – After the fish kill ina river early this week, the Hinoba-an municipal government submitted fish andwater samples for analysis to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources(BFAR). Afterward, they coordinated withconcerned offices and agencies, including the local environment and naturalresources office, Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, and BFAR-NegrosOccidental. “Once the result is out, we candetermine the real cause of the fish kill,” Cambarijan added.center_img Monitoring held by the MunicipalAgriculture Office indicated random traces of dead fish, such as the gusaw (mullet), asu-os (whiting), bugaong(terapon), sigwin (garfish), and evenpasayan (shrimp). Several freshwater fish like the bunog were also found in other portionsof the river. Agriculturist Jimmy Cambarijan, alsothe municipal fishery program coordinator, said the incident was confirmed bythe town’s Bantay Dagat. Cambarijan raised the possibility thatsome farmers used chemicals, such as fertilizers, which probably mixed with thewater or there has been some “unregulated” small-scale mining in the area.

White House continues trade war with China

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In a move that will further escalate trade tensions, the Trump administration announced its intention to place a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and threatened to levy tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of imports.The Chinese government has already responded in kind with tariffs on $60 billion worth of American imports.“China has unquestionably engaged in unfair and manipulative trade behavior for many years. Though we agree with President Trump’s effort to address these actions, we strongly disagree with his go-it-alone approach. We believe he would be more successful in achieving fundamental reforms in China’s trading tactics by leading the rest of the world in a united front,” said Rob Larew, National Farmers Union vice president Public Policy and Communications. “The administration’s current strategy has created serious and potentially irrevocable problems for American farmers and ranchers. The loss of export markets and severely depressed commodity prices cost wheat, soy, and corn growers to the tune of $13 billion dollars in the month of June alone; yesterday’s announcement to escalate tensions further will undoubtedly cost them billions more in the years to come.“The effect these tariffs will have on export markets is clearly not a temporary problem, and as such, a temporary solution will not be sufficient. We call on Congress and the administration to establish meaningful, long-term safeguards that will prevent family farmers and ranchers from collapsing under the weight of a global trade war.”last_img read more

Chennai crush Stags to begin Champions League on a high

first_imgChennai Super Kings crushed Central Districts Stags by 57 runs to begin their Champions League campaign on a high.Chennai Super Kings vs Central District Stags, ScoresBrief Scores: Chennai 151-4 (20); Stags 94 all out (18)Champions League 2010 – Special Coverage  The IPL champions posted 151-4, a hard-fought score set up with Subramaniam Badrinath’s unbeaten 52 and Srikkanth Anirudha’s enterprising 42 after been promoted up the order ahead of MS Dhoni.Stags, the New Zealand domestic T20 champions, were bowled out for 94 in 18 overs.They struggled to get going under lights at the Kingsmead. Chennai’s pacers Doug Bollinger and Albie Morkel choked up the runs before the spin twins Muttiah Muralitharan and R Ashwin blew away their top-order.Anirudha led Chennai’s fightback adding 73 with Badrinath in 8.1 overs after they were tottering at 40-3 in the ninth over.Opener Matthew Hayden fell for a first-ball duck and Suresh Raina for 4. Both were done in by short balls, as was Murali Vijay (19).Hayden pulled one from Michael Mason that bounced a little more than expected to deep square leg. Raina, having glanced a first-ball four off Adam Milne, fended off a short ball to slip.Vijay too was caught at slip, off Mitchell McClenaghan. Chennai’s pace force of Bollinger and Morkel, followed by the swing of Lakshmipathy Balaji, was expected to trouble Stags. But their spinners did more damage to the Stags.Dhoni’s men dropped a couple of easy catches early on. Ashwin put down Peter Ingram running back to midwicket while Raina floored skipper Jamie How at cover.advertisementIngram didn’t last long, skying Morkel to Raina at cover. Before they knew it, the Stags had slipped to 44-6 in the 11th over and the game was all but over by then.Doug Bracewell’s 30 batting at No. 9 took them towards three-figures but Bollinger’s final over produced two wickets to end their innings at 94.last_img read more
